The fifth annual Michigan Angel Summit is a great opportunity for individual investors to meet like-minded people from around the state and learn more about this exciting asset class. Whether you are considering becoming an angel investor or have been making angel investments for years, you will gain valuable information about the opportunities available as well as the latest trends in angel investing.

Our keynote speaker is Peter Adams, Angel Capital Association board member and teacher of the ACA Angel University course on exits.

The agenda includes presentations and discussions about where to find good deals, tax breaks on profits, banking scams to watch out for, and how current market turmoil may affect your investment strategy. This year will also revisit topics on SAFE notes, common angel mistakes, and company pitches. Of course, the day will provide lots of opportunities for in-person networking.

“Angel investing by ‘qualified’ investors in our state is growing. The Michigan Angel Summit is the opportunity to hear about that activity and learn about how angel investing works, both for early stage companies as well as people interested in learning about why it’s an attractive investment activity.” — Skip Simms, Ann Arbor SPARK vice president and managing director of the Michigan Angel Community

This event is presented by Ann Arbor SPARK.
